Annual Public Hearing Recap

June 30, 2016

Each year, Hoosier taxpayers are invited to share their thoughts and concerns about the administration of Indiana taxes with the commissioner and other representatives from the Indiana Department of Revenue. This year’s annual public hearing was held on June 21, 2016.

Representatives from the Indiana CPA Society (INCPAS), a professional organization of certified public accountants and professional tax preparers, were in attendance. Kyle Simmerman of the INCPAS thanked the department for its commitment to outreach and made valuable suggestions for upcoming programs and next year’s tax season.

In addition, taxpayers in attendance asked questions of the department regarding the administration of sales tax. Giving taxpayers a forum in which they can have their voices heard is just one more way the department continues to provide good customer service.
